The theme is not really about Leed standards or how to build greener houses. Its more fundamental technologies that are being researched within the universities of the region that are gaining some international interest and can start to be incorporated and implemented within the next 1-5 years. It can also be as another example the Solar industry with new technology coming out of First Solar in Toledo and also another company in Michigan called United Solar Ovonics. It could be Windspires that are supposed to be appearing in CSU some day. However, it could be green buildings if there is a company in the midwest that is developing some kind of technology to make them greener.
